Seahawks' Branden Jackson: Tallies two sacks in 2019
Jackson finished with 20 tackles over 15 regular-season appearances.
Jackson enjoyed an increase in snaps in 2019 in part due to merit, but also because Jadeveon Clowney (core) and Ezekiel Ansah (neck) battled injuries. The 27-year-old even started three games, but he also a healthy scratch once. Jackson will be an unrestricted free agent in March if he isn't re-signed by the Seahawks. If the Texas Tech product sticks with the team, however, he'll compete with Rasheem Green -- who is three years younger and a better pass rusher -- and possibly Nazair Jones (knee) for a starting role....

Seahawks' Branden Jackson: Notches sack Sunday
Jackson recorded three tackles and a sack in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Steelers.

Jackson played 12 games for the Seahawks in 2017 and recorded 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks. When the defensive corps is healthy, Jackson will be a backup to Dion Jordan (shin).

Jackson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.
Jackson's promotion is no surprise as the Seahawks defensive line was looking extraordinarily thin with Cliff Avril (neck) and Quinton Jefferson (hand) both looking at prolonged absences.
